During “Paper Caper” at the Providence Children’s Museum, kids will fold and crease paper to create whirligigs, design gliders, and fashion other flying contraptions – and then send them soaring. Other special events throughout the week include children’s singer and storyteller Keith Munslow, a program about birds called “Wingmasters,” and “Mad Science.” Families can also explore ThinkSpace, a new exhibit that explores spatial thinking.
Feb. 18—22, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. $9 per person. Free for babies under 12 months. Providence Children’s Museum, 100 South St., Providence. www.childrenmuseum.org
